The purpose of the IPSC is to bring together the best speakers from all over the world for a week of international cultural exchange. It showcases the very highest standard of public speaking from around the world, while giving delegates an opportunity to meet and engage with other young people of different backgrounds and cultures.
IPSC 2013 will run from Monday 13 May 2013 - Friday 17 May 2013. The programme for the week will be made avaialable closer to the time, but will include debating and public speaking workshops delivered by world class coaches and mentors, a number of educational and cultural trips and excursions in London, as well as the heats, semi-finals and grand final of the competition.
In keeping with the format of last year’s competition, we are releasing two themes: the national theme, which may be used by public speaking coordinators for their national competition finals, and the international theme, which will be used at the final of the international competition in May. This year’s national theme is A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand and the international theme is Ideas Are Our Greatest Weapons.
